The VBDI (Vitale Bald Dome Index) has been very busy lately, churning out bubble teams and looking ahead to the big dance. Now it is giving out its All-Sold Gold squad.

The players receive the honors they deserve. It is much more important to be on the postseason All-America squad than the preseason team.

These players were chosen based on the 2013-14 college hoops season and was not picked with NBA future ability as a consideration. These players are the crème de la crème of the college hoops campaign. There were a number of great candidates who fell short of this list. It has been a great season, with many stars shining. Not all of them could make my top-five teams.

Here we go:

FIRST TEAM
Doug McDermott, Creighton
Jabari Parker, Duke
C.J. Fair, Syracuse
Shabazz Napier, Connecticut
Nick Johnson, Arizona

SECOND TEAM

Aaron Gordon, Arizona
Julius Randle, Kentucky
Russ Smith, Louisville
Tyler Ennis, Syracuse

THIRD TEAM
T.J. Warren, NC State
Rodney Hood, Duke

Nik Stauskas, Michigan
